Benedict is a fine talent and he always comes to work prepared. I would rent this one, if I had it to do over, rather than purchase it, but I will watch it again over time. Best car crash, ever! ... well ... maybe that James Bond wreck was close, but they gave us a fantastic wreck in this one. That's worth 4 Stars any time!
A must see for comic book fans. The effects are incredible.. Cumberbach is a good protagonist.. creating an arrogant but in the end likeable hero. The storyline was a little convoluted and the set up was a bit slow. But, once it started to bite, it was an entertaining and sometimes exciting flick. Comic fans.. check it out. If you aren't a comic book fan, this probably isn't a flick for you
I had a ton of fun watching it for the first time in theaters. I was looking forward for the movie to come out so I could watch it over and over. Unfortunately some of the magic wore off after the first watch. It's not like Rogue One, which I watched 5 times in theaters and still loved every second of it.
I did enjoy that it was a bit different than other Marvel movies!
Who doesn't love Benedict Cumberbatch? And he makes a terrific Dr Strange. The plot is a bit overdone (but hey, it's another Marvel Superhero movie, so that's part of the package) but it is your standard, fun, superhero movie, with the added bonus of BC.
Solid and brilliantly cast. Cumberbatch is perfect as the smarmy surgeon forced to reevaluate his life. Not quite at the Deadpool/Guardians level, but it delivers good action and well designed effects. Updates but remains reasonably true to character and storyline except for some altered artifacts and plotlines that tie Strange in with the upcoming Infinity War series. Marvel continues to excel at developing its characters for film and tv.
Not what I hoped for as an Avenger fan, but certainly a wild ride. I am sure fans of the character will probably enjoy it more. I personally won't probably see another unless it includes other Avengers.
